Poetic nuances in our bilingual life…


its a smile
a caress
its the fluttering lashes on your smooth skin
its the the tone in your voice
its the way you dance
a smile, a kiss
its what we do everyday
play with arena
point to aviones
try out new words
its the look in your eyes
the tiza
the paint
el papel
all the new discoveries
that remind me
of the things I miss
because the details get smaller
as time passes


About Suzanne García-Mateus

I write about my bilingual life on my blog, Interpretations of a Bilingual Life: https://suzannemateus.com/ I was also a monthly contributor for http://www.spanglishbaby.com/ where I wrote about my attempt to raise a multilingual baby. I have written (and am interested in continuing to do so) for other blogs focusing on my experiences about nursing my toddler and about having an amazing intervention-free and med-free birth.
